FPGAs have become a hot topic in the IT industry, thanks to the unprecedented computing power that they bring to demanding HPC applications, but the traditional route to FPGA-powered applications typically includes hardware prototyping, construction of a hardware appliance, and mass production, not to mention a lengthy sales and deployment cycle. AWS recently introduced FPGA-powered instances (aka F1 instances) to make the process simpler and quicker. Julien Simon walks you through building an FPGA-enabled application, from design to simulation to synthesis to execution on an F1 instance.
